The engineers of tomorrow will need to design increasingly complex integrated systems to meet the demands of a rapidly changing technological landscape. To do so, the engineering students of today require hands-on education to understand the necessary theory underpinning system components. They also require experience synthesizing these components into an operational system. In this keynote, NI unveils how students can equip themselves with the proper tools to “do engineering” like never before and graduate as an unmatched generation of system designers.
RF and communications education has traditionally been limited to a focus on mathematical theory. Discover how you can incorporate a hands-on experience with communications systems to link theory with a practical implementation. Learn how students can experiment with applications of real-world signals in wireless and digital communications using the NI USRP™ (Universal Software Radio Peripheral).
In the real world, communication systems are designed by cross-functional teams of computer scientists, electrical engineers, and computer engineers. Learn how the University of California, San Diego, is moving a diverse set of students through the digital communications learning curve, from a cold start to designing orthogonal frequency division multiplexing radios. Find out how students get hands-on experience to transition from the classroom to the lab and to excel in their technical careers.
Analog, digital, and power circuits theory provides students the foundational knowledge that is critical to their success throughout their engineering careers. Engaging students with these fundamental topics requires a comprehensive teaching approach to reinforce theory from homework problems all the way to laboratory exploration. Learn how the NI Multisim circuits teaching environment fully integrates with the NI myDAQ and NI Educational Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Suite (NI ELVIS) laboratory education platforms to offer educators a complete teaching solution and provide students a seamless path from textbook to lab results.
Discover how National University incorporates hands-on experimentation into online and on-site classes for circuits and electronics. Find out how student satisfaction with learning, teachers, course content, and technology improved by up to 28 percent and GPAs increased 8 percent using the NI Educational Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Suite (NI ELVIS), NI myDAQ, and NI Multisim.
Discover how Purdue University is implementing a hands-on experience in a control systems course to help students progress from design to prototyping in just one semester. With the skills they gain designing control algorithms on real-time controllers and programming them to an FPGA, students can translate controls theory into real-world projects during the senior capstone course.
Traditional controls education often emphasizes abstract theory without practical implementation, which can leave students disengaged with the material and unprepared to solve real-world control problems. Hands-on experience with the entire control design process prepares students for engineering careers while reinforcing theoretical concepts. See how NI LabVIEW software seamlessly integrates with NI reconfigurable I/O real-time hardware and Quanser control plants to create a turnkey, hands-on controls education platform built to engage students by putting theory into practice.
